ST Electronics Launches Commercial Satellite Imagery Service

SINGAPORE: ST Electronics launched a new commercial imagery service using the first made-in-Singapore commercial Earth observation satellite, TeLEOS-1, on Tuesday (Jul 26).

The new imagery service is the first in the world to provide one-metre resolution with the fastest response time from a Near-Equatorial Orbit remote sensing satellite.

Besides the sales of satellite imagery, ST Electronics will also provide value-added applications covering urban planning and infrastructure management for smart cities, environmental and resources monitoring, humanitarian aid and disaster relief, maritime security and safety, border and territorial water protection, it said in a press release.

The launch follows the successful completion of a six-month In-Orbit-Test of the satellite that started on Dec 16, 2015.

ST Electronics president Lee Fook Sun said the launch of the service is a “momentous milestone” for the company.

“Our unique offering of multi-source, multi-modal, high responsive satellite imagery has attracted strong interests from our international network of resellers and distributors,” he said.

ST Electronics also announced that it is entering into several new partnership agreements. With the Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA), it will acquire and develop imaging systems to support government agencies’ imagery requirements, such as monitoring of haze hotspots and detection of oil spills.

It has signed agreements with Korean distributor SI Imaging Services, Russian reseller SOVZOND Company Ltd and South African reseller Broadstone Technologies for TeLEOS-1 imagery, and is in discussion with other distributors and resellers that will promote and sell TeLEOS-1 imagery and applications globally.

It will also work with the Economic Development Board on corporate accelerator programmes, to develop new ideas for new markets using satellite data, the company said.
